H-Net Job Guide Weekly Report For H-German: 11 March - 18 March
On behalf of the North Carolina German Studies Seminar, I would like to remind readers of H-German that the deadline for the inaugural Konrad Jarausch Essay Prize for Advanced Graduate Students in Central European History is coming up. Submissions are due on 4/1, and full details can be found here. We are initiating this annual prize to honor Professor Jarausch and his long commitment to graduate student instruction.
German literature is home to the Doppelgänger. From its literary introduction in the late eighteenth-century to its uncanny fin-de-siècle return a century later, the double was destined for the silver screen and has been the subject of countless interpretations, adaptations, and theoretical analyses.
